And there is a great story about that. And it just happened the other night, it was Kartik Purnima. And Kartik Purnima, there was a rasa leela, and Shiva and Parvati were dancing in Manipur. They had seen the dance of Radha and Krishna, and they were so enamored of Radha and Krishna’s dance that Shiva and Parvati began to dance. And then everybody got up and sang a song.
And Saraswati sang a song and it was very beautiful. And Shiva sang a song and it was even more beautiful. And Radha and Krishna were dancing to Shiva’s song, and from the perspiration from Krishna’s brow, Ganga came. Ganga came, and when Radha saw Ganga she looked at Krishna and said, “Hey, Don’t get any ideas. I know your nature.”
Ganga became terrified and took refuge at Krishna’s feet. And she hid there. And Radha started scolding Krishna, She said, “I saw you with Pushti, I saw you with Shanti, I saw you with all of the other ladies of Golok. You always were chasing those girls. You were running after peace, You were running after nourishment, You were always taking refuge in all the divine attributes of divinity, of heaven. And now I see what youâ€™re planning to do with this Ganga.”
Krishna said, “I didn’t do anything. I was dancing with my beloved Radha, and here came Ganga, and it’s not my fault. Brahma! Protect Ganga. Take Ganga in your water pot, and you take her with you. Save her from the wrath of Radha.”
So Ganga entered into Brahma’s Kamandalu, into His water pot, and She went to the Brahma-loka.
